The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Saturday announced the Bangladeshi 15-man squad for the three-match T20I series against Pakistan. The Bangladeshi tigers will play three Twenty20 matches in Lahore from January 24-27. 

Opener Tamim Iqbal has returned to join the squad after he didn't play any match in the home series played against Afghanistan and Zimbabwe and also missed a tour in India. Mosaddek Hossain, Arafat Sunny, Taijul Islam and Abu Hider have been dropped from the squad.

The wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has declined to visit Pakistan for the forthcoming series due to security concerns.
